Who Dogged City Hall?

At least the big ones are easy to spot. It's the little left-overs you have to really watch for. For example, these from yesterday:

But despite their small size, the flies still like them.

I wonder how good Mayor Kasprzak's vision is? Imagine wearing new shoes, you don't pay attention because in you're in a hurry to attend a meeting, and -- yuck! --time to scrape off both disease-carrying flies and their meal from the soles. Especially before a luncheon meeting.

Clop, Clop, Plop, Plop?

During Mayor's Cup one night I saw a couple of riders on horses making their way through downtown Plattsburgh.

The next day I found two mystery globs on the Durkee Street sidewalk. It looks like someone stepped in one and kept walking. I suspect they're evidence of equine waste but I'm not positive. And taking photos is about as close was I want to get.

Whatever they are, they were still there yesterday, drier in the hot sun but still damn disgusting.

Horse sense says someone should shovel this stuff up.

Diaper Or Paper Towel?

In the previous post I shared an image of a dirty diaper left in the parking lot of the County Social Services building in downtown Plattsburgh.

The diaper was still there yesterday, cooking in the 90 degrees F + sun. And in case anyone has any doubts about whether it really is a diaper, note the Huggies logo. (It's a size 4, to be exact.)

Glass, Plywood And Blood

If you're going to open a business in downtown Plattsburgh, make sure to have a large sheet of plywood on hand. It's almost guaranteed that at some point one of your windows will be smashed and you'll need a quick fix.

Apparently someone had a rough encounter with a window on City Hall Place, maybe during the July 4th festivities. There's a trail of blood on the sidewalk.

Another thing to have on hand if you're a downtown business: a garden hose and a large container of disinfectant.

The 4th Of Crap

Is there a better way to show your respect for this God-blessed country on its 234th birthday than by leaving a dirty diaper in a downtown parking lot?

Of course, the USA prides itself on its educational system. But sometimes one wonders about its illiteracy rates.

But America is still a great nation. Walk proud -- but watch your step...

Or you might interrupt the flies enjoying their meal.
